Gyula Pap

Gyula Pap (1899 – 1983) was one of the Bauhaus artist-students. He later became a teacher and the Bauhaus had a great influence on his whole life. The black and white photographs, original paintings, fabrics and metalwork displayed are from the collector Dr. Friedrich Hellersberg, Heppenheim near Frankfurt, Germany. The exhibition is on loan by Andrea Hassan, who studied at what is now called the Bauhaus University in Weimar, and has been a Dubai resident for nearly 25 years. As a mediator between the cultures, she has brought this exhibition here to raise awareness about the Bauhaus. “If nothing else, Dubai’s skyline would never have developed without Bauhaus principles set forth,” she observes.
